MOSCOW, December 13. /TASS/. The victory of Donald Trump at US presidential election demonstrates the weakness of "classical" sociology in the face of the internet because Hillary Clinton was leading in most sociological polls ahead of the vote, Russian presidential advisor for developing internet German Klimenko told Life Zvuk radio station.

"No one on the internet asked or looked at what people answer. No one monitored how many people like Trump’s messages on Twitter. That’s how we saw for the first time that old sociology turned out to be weaker that the internet, and Clinton lost," Klimenko said.

Clinton’s defeat was due to the fact that her team underestimated the internet factor and was "disoriented by old sociology," he added. "The problem is probably not in Trump winning but in Clinton losing," the advisor noted.

Klimenko also said that the US election strengthened the internet factor in politics. "We have our own election cycles, and people across the world are starting to pay attention to it now. The factor of attitude toward the internet has shifted from economic to political. Now we can say for sure that the internet affects politics. Internet has become part of politics," he concluded.
